's bound to come ut many say tonight, either from the president or from the moderator. bill clinton today, take a listen. >> i couldn't believe the other day when the president's opponent said 47% of american people who don't pay income tax just want to hang around and be president. we just have to wean them off because they don't want to pay income tax. now, a guy with a tax account in the cayman islands is attacking other people? when you really bust someone for what you did, it really takes a lot of gal, you know. >> now, that's former president clinton. will the president go after mitt romney tonight? do you think? >> well, it's hard to imagine that somebody, either jim lehrer or the president himself, won't bring up the 47% video because it has been devastating to romney. obama has used it in ads and it plays into the perception of romney as a very rich guy who is completely out of touch with ordinary voters. however, i can't imagine that romney hasn't are practiced responses to that. he's already had an ad where he sits down, faces the camera, he tries to assure voters that he wants

moment when president clinton was in st. louis and african-american woman stood up and thanked him for helping her get a job because she said my daughter is starting school at a magnet school. and all the best young girls from st. louis are going to be there. the first day of school they're going to be in the lunchroom and they're all going to go around and say what their parents do, my father's a doctor, my father's a lawyer. i didn't want my daughter to have so say, my mother's on welfare. i want her to say, my mother works for ford motor company. >> i remember that encounter. >> it was a moving moment. a moving moment. and paul ryan doesn't get that. people don't want a check. they want the dignity of working at a job. no one wants to be on the dole. almost no one in this country. they just don't get it. >> how do you react to this new ryan tape that comes out now as a -- coupled with the presidential candidate's 47% tape? >> well, this is not a gaffe, which is what they would like it to be. it's an ideology, it goes back to republicans' ideas about medicare, social security, ab
